Re: Unable to quit JAWS using Insert+F4

I hate Jaws in the task bar too. And, I'm still curious as to where Jaws runs best.

If this is the case I wonder why "Run from system tray" is not checked by default if you install Jaws on a new system.
It is always one of the first things I do either manually or in the setup wizard since I hate having Jaws in the taskbar.

Greetings,

Now, you got me curious. FS use to always tell users of Jaws that they will have a better experience if they run Jaws from the system tray. What kind of problems do you run in to if it is run from the system tray.

Naturally, we all want Jaws to be as effective and problem free as possible.
So, Any advice will be appreciated.

Cheers,

James B

Hi,
JAWS in the system tray does not always respond well. Best practice in my thought is to quit JAWS with JAWS key and F4.

Are you not running Jaws from the system tray? If doing an insert/jaws key plus J doesn't put you in to the Jaws options, that is telling you that all you need to do is put Jaws in to the system tray. Then, insert/Jaws F4 will work the way you want it to.

If you can alt tab to the Jaws options menu, then go in to basics and tab to run Jaws in the system tray and check that check box.

Good luck,

James B

Hi,

I am using latest 2019 JAWS and Windows 10. Working for me... surely must be a setting. Has all been accomplished with obtaining authorization? I am not sure if this works with laptop setting Vs desktop.

Yes, I have already tested this one and it works as expected. I just wanted
Insert+F4 command to somehow work, but no success so far.

Hi Surendra,

When you alt tab to the JAWS screen/application, try alt F4 and see if
you get the shut down command.

Hi all,

I hope this Email finds you all in good spirit.

My friend has recently purchased a laptop equipped with Windows10.
Since he is not that tech savvy, he wanted me to install his prefered
apps and do all the necessary settings according to his liking. I
installed JAWS and NVDA successfully; however, I was unable to perform
the Insert+F4 command to quit JAWS by any means, even when setting
keyboard layout to laptop. As I hit Caps lock+F4, JAWS speaks
"Windows+P" and opens a projection listbox with 4 options like,
"Computer only," "Extend" etc. I tried the same via an external USB
keyboard, but to no avail. Besides, Application key for bringing up a
context menu is non-functional, I can easily launch the same with
Shift+F10 though. Now, it really makes me wonder why such a strange is
happening. Your tips and tricks will be highly appreciated.
